Alesha Ahmed due to continue testimony against her parents

The sister of Shafilea Ahmed is due to continue her testimony against their parents in the next hour. Alesha Ahmed told Chester Crown Court yesterday that her father and mother Iftikhar and Farzana suffocated her 17-year-old sister, forcing a plastic bag into her throat.

Today she is expected to explain why she decided to make her allegations 7 years after Shafilea died and days after Alesha was involved in a robbery at the family home. The Ahmeds deny murdering their daughter in September 2003.
